Mary McCormack Among Loaded Cast of AMC/Channel 4 Tech Biz Drama

In Plain Sight alum Mary McCormack is among the cast of Loaded, AMC’s newly announced comedic drama being co-produced by Channel 4.

An eight-part series based on the award-wining Keshet International format Mesudarim, Loaded follows four tech entrepreneurs and childhood friends who have just sold their start-up videogame company for hundreds of millions of pounds — “the culmination of a billion man-hours of blood, sweat, toil, coding, shouting, swearing, fighting, hugging, pitching, grinding, and, occasionally, showering.” Overnight, the four are transformed from “people who play games” to “serious players in the game,” and thus get swept up in “a raging hurricane of money, excess and millionaire’s guilt.”

Jim Howick (The Aliens, Scream Street) plays Josh, the fretful moral compass of the group, while Samuel Anderson (Doctor Who) is Leon, Idyl Hands’ charismatic Business Development Director. Jonny Sweet (Babylon, Him & Her) plays coding director Ewan, Nick Helm (Uncle, Big Babies) is Watto, the eccentric artist who drew the artwork for their hit game, and McCormack fills the role of Casey, the “ruthless, immaculate and forthright ” VP for Acquisitions at the parent company that has bought the Idyl Hands start-up.

Loaded will go into production in early November, to premiere on AMC and Channel 4 in 2017.
